Fighting is a choice we all have to make at one point in our life or another

I never thought I would ever use the word Saint and Alice Cooper in the same sentence, but here it is. He came out with a song about not giving up, Don't Give Up. Fighting is a choice we all have to make at one point in our life or another. In this case, it is deciding if you want to fight for the lives of others. 

Do you only focus on your own pain, or search your soul to see what you can do to change the lives of others for the better, because you've been there and know what it is like. What it is like to be hopeless, afraid, lonely and discouraged, but you also know what it was like when someone came along and helped you feel better about your own life.

When Thanksgiving came, there were people all over the country, lining up at food distribution sites. Not to get food, but to give it out to those who would otherwise go hungry. When musicians take the time to come up with songs like this one from Alice Cooper, and Steven Perry in the other video, they do it, not for the publicity, but to use their publicity to make things better.

Right now, all over the country, there are people stepping up to make a positive difference. There are some out there who do not believe there is a plague and deny they are contributing to it, because they cannot see how they can make a difference in a positive way to help others through it. Try to not focus on them because they are not happy or loving people. They are miserable and spread their misery as fast as the plague.

When you have PTSD, you run into that type of person all the time. They deny what PTSD is and can make it feel as if the world is crashing in on you. Don't spend your time with the people knocking down the rocks on your head, but focus on those securing the walls to keep you safer.

Miracles happen everyday because people care and know where you are so they can help you, Seek them out instead of hiding from them. They can't help you if they don't know you need it.
 
Remember it is your life...get in and drive it! #BreakTheSilence and #TakeBackYourLife from #PTSD




Yeah, I know you're struggling right now
We all are, in different ways
It's like a new world that we don't even know
It's hard to sleep
Even harder to dream
But look, you've got 7 billion brothers and sisters all in the same boat
So don't panic
Life has a way of surviving and going on and on
We're not fragile, and we sure don't break easy
You know it's so hard to cope
When you're just hoping there's hope
We're all hanging on by a thread
We're all staring at the razor's edge
But we're not going to step off the ledge
No!
Our enemy is a cold, indiscriminate monster
It doesn't care if you're old or newborn, it exists to kill
You and I are nothing to it
It has no heart or soul or conscience
Do we fear it? Yeah
Do we cower before it? Hell no
We're the blood and guts human race, and we win!
You know that it's right
So we just gotta fight
Yeah, we're all hanging on by a thread
We're all staring at the razor's edge
But we're not going to step off the ledge
No!
We're all hanging on by a thread
We're all staring at the razor's edge
But we're not going to step off the ledge
No!
This is Alice Cooper in Detroit
Let's keep fighting
Don't give up

Under neon lights, we claim this town
No one can take us down
No, not tonight
City Boys and City Girls
Runnin' Wild
Burning like a fallin' star
Golden stardust, that's what we are
Young voices carry on
Come together in the same ole song
We're still here
We're shadows fallin'
The night is callin' again
We're still here
Where love is runnin'
The night is calling, again
(Brother to brother)
Another night, another town
Walkin' my heart around
Same old choices, again
Like so many tears in the rain
Will they remember your name
Young hearts reach fearlessly
In the night
We're still here
We're shadows fallin'
The night is callin' again
We're still here
Where love is runnin'
The night is calling, again
(Sister to sister)
We're all together
(You know, I care)
We are
(We will)
Always
(Be together)
We're still here
We're shadows fallin'
The night is callin' again
We're still here
Where love is runnin'
The night is calling, again
(Brother to Brother)
Brother to Brother
(Sister to Sister)
We're still here
Where love is runnin'
The night is calling, again
